Record a Message for the Bride to Be!

Being chosen to be the maid of honour really is a role of honour! The bride-to-be chose you to be the closest person to her on the day of her wedding, aside from the groom, and it’s an incredibly important role on both the wedding day and the lead up to the wedding.

So you might be wondering how you can properly say thanks to her for choosing you to be her maid of honour. Well, we’ve found the perfect way to do just that...record a message for her!

Recording a message for the bride is a fantastic way to tell her how thankful you are and how much you appreciate her as a friend or family member. So let’s get into what you can include in your message.

1. Reminisce on Memories

No doubt the two of you will have amazing memories together so talk about those. Whether it’s a funny memory or a sad one that you both went through, talk about it. When the bride was thinking about choosing you she was probably thinking about the same memories you are now. Show her that you’re both on the same level and she’ll instantly know that she chose the right person for the job.

2. Reassure and Comfort Her

The build-up to the wedding can get pretty intense. It can be overwhelming for everyone involved. But nobody will be feeling the pressure as much as the bride and groom. They’ve had to organise the whole wedding themselves and the stress of it can get a bit too much at times, so reassure her that it’s all worth it and she’s making the best decision she ever made in marrying the groom.

3. Thank Her For Choosing You

Choosing a maid of honour can be a difficult choice to make, especially if the bride has a very close group of friends. Choosing just one person from that group can be a very hard choice. Thank her for choosing you and let her know how much you appreciate the thought.

The important thing to remember when putting your message together is to be relaxed. Add some personal jokes the two of you have, bring up some funny moments you had over the years, talk about things only you would know. Enjoy the moment when recording the message and it will make things so much easier.

But you’ve one thing to decide on. Do you want to record a video message or an audio message? Personally we think that a video message is the best option because your facial expressions will make your message come across even better.

Recording a message for the bride is a fantastic idea. The maid of honour usually doesn’t do a speech at the wedding, so this is your way of doing a personalised speech for just the bride and the groom. So remember to have fun with the message and enjoy it while you’re doing it.
